Yesterday, during the preparations for the Moschino x H & M show tonight in New York, top model Soo Joo Park stopped thinking she was considering getting rid of her platinum blonde hair color for the neon orange color in the near future. And once the word came to designer Jeremy Scott, the makeover of Park & # 39; s Manic Panic was as good as done.
"It's always a strange thing when you have a characteristic look and then you try to change it," Park explained in the backstage, his brilliant citrus dye job with only three hours to live. "There is some fear at the beginning, but I have had many ups and downs with the discoloration, I felt brave enough to try."
The colorist behind the new acid tone of the model born in Korea, raised in California, was none other than Aura Friedman, who first bleached the dark lengths of Park six years ago. "There is definitely Fifth Element "Park said, referring to Luc Besson's classic cult movie in 1997, as he ran his fingers through the fringed curtain brushing the fierce feline movies drawn by make-up artist Pat McGrath." It's one of my favorite movies and Milla Jovovich looks amazing in "But, while her richly pigmented tone recalled the distinctive nuance that belongs to the heroine of the science fiction classic Leelo, it was ultimately tailor made for Park, from the tones Warm to the effect of blocked color created by the thick black low lights at the nape. "My skin has yellow hues, so we left with a redder orange," he said of the custom tone.
Park's new look remained consistent with the high-octane ambience above the show's neckline with its line of ultra-vivid hairstyles designed by stylist Jimmy Paul, beginning with the waist-length plaits woven with caramel-colored extensions. and ending with hi-top castings trimmed with high-wattage mandarin and lemon. "Neon is definitely [having a moment] right now, but there's also a vibe of rave culture, "Paul explained, nodding to Scott's club roots.
The fans seem destined to compete for the Minnie Mouse sweatshirt dresses from the Moschino x H & M collection, the sequined parkas and the denim coveralls, but for those who want to capture the renegade spirit of long-awaited collaboration and skip the lines while they are in that? You would do well to simply pick up a jar of Manic Panic. After all, "it's just hair," Park says with a smile. "You can forever dye again. "
